Today, May 23, many churches celebrate astronomer Johannes Kepler, one of the fathers of modern astronomy, and a man who desired to bring glory to God through understanding the universe He made. He developed the Laws of Planetary Motion.
“Great is God our Lord, great is His power and there is no end to His wisdom. Praise Him you heavens, glorify Him, sun and moon and you planets. For out of Him and through Him, and in Him are all things….. We know, oh, so little. To Him be the praise, the honor and the glory from eternity to eternity.” -Johannes Kepler
